There were fresh porcini mushrooms at Corti Brothers yesterday! I'd never even seen them before. They're $29.99/lb so I only bought one. It totally changed my dinner plans. I bought some dried porcinis too, grilled the fresh one and made risotto with the beef stock that I had been making for the French onion soup (big cooking day yesterday). Mmmmm...deeelicious! Mild woodsy flavor, firm lovely texture. I tried a sample of the grilled one before adding it to the risotto and that was excellent too. Simple elegant flavor.
I was told that the flavor fades very quickly and these mushrooms arrived at Corti Brothers over the weekend so hurry over if you're interested.
